Regina-Saskatchewan’s chief coroner has said two public inquests will be held following a fatal stabbing incident northeast of Saskatoon earlier this month.
One was to focus on the deaths of 11 people in the James Smith Cree Nation and the nearby village of Weldon, and the other was that of Miles Sanderson, who was suspected in police custody days later. Focus on death.
Chief coroner Clive Weihill says there will be no criminal trial in the deaths of Sanderson and a second suspect, his brother Damian Sanderson, and that there are many unanswered questions.
He also says he intends to have all Native Americans sit on the jury for the hearing.
Weighill expects an inquest to be held next spring or summer.
